That ol' Stromlo thing again - 17:22
As it happens Tony will be getting a fancy new rather light nice road bike later this week (probably one of these), thus to give me a bit of oomph on the bike in the hope I can still ride faster than him I decided I had better go and climb Mt Stromlo during the day again today.

Damn that was bad, 12:30 for the climb itself, 1h11m for the 36.4KM ride (work,stromlo,work) which is a rather lacklustre average speed of 30.6 KMh. The worst was during the climb, I had been unable to keep the pace above 20 KMh on the first half, a little past the boom gates I started picking the pace up properly and all of a sudden I was unable to breathe without pain. My diaphragm muscles were really hurting. I think the main reason for this is I have done no hard efforts since before the geoquest and thus had not had to breathe hard, especially not in the cold air we have in town currently. I think I need to go out and do a bunch more rides by myself at high pace with some hills to get me breathing hard.
